Try different paper. Maybe the stuff you're using now is too thick, or too thin

Take it apart and put it through the dishwasher.

Damp paper. Put it in the HWC.

Take the musical instrument off it LOL

If it's under warranty get it fixed, else

find out the error in MAINTENANCE mode.

- Switch off the machine by pulling out the AC plug
- Switch on the machine with holding the "MENU" button down. Keep holding it until you see some info, then release... .
- What kind of error pops up in the display?

post any error codes

I have this problem too. If paper is damp or room is too humid then paper jams. I keep the paper in the hot water cupboard and run the dehumidifier in the computer room next to the printer. that always solves the problem for me.

Turn it off?

Usually jams keep happening in the same place. Usually it's due to a tiny cam or foot that has a spring missing. Look at the very point that it jams. You may need a screwdiver. Be gentle.
